LABOUR

Cara Brady

The 114th IPE helps Armstrong celebrate its 100th birthday this year. “The centennial will be one of our theme days and there will be centennial displays, along with our overall theme, Enjoy the Fruits of Our Labour,” said Bryan Burns, Interior Provincial Exhibition and Stampede general manager. He likes to think that people who came to the fair a century ago would be happy to see many of the things that made have made it a cherished tradition are still there. “That’s the beauty of our fair. We have maintained all the best of the agricultural elements. We have 20 divisions that people can enter — animals, crops, floral, hobbies. Now that people are not so close to agriculture, there is a large educational component with a sow and a litter, a calf being born, and chicken and dairy displays. People, especially the former farmers, enjoy seeing the agricultural equipment,” he said. “And we don’t forget the other traditions that make a great fair — the midway, the entertainment, and the food like the haystacks and the horse blankets. There’s such a great variety of food options now.” The IPE involves almost everyone in the community in some way, from volunteering for board of directors and all the other things that have to be done year round to make the fair a success, to local non-profits sponsoring fair activities as fundraisers for their work. The fair also benefits the community by buying locally. There are 450 volunteers who put in more than 12,000 hours each year and about 100 local people who have short-term jobs during the fair. Then there are the 2,000 exhibitors with about 7,000 exhibits, most of them (46 Allan Johnson scrapes paint off the portable bleachers to get them ready for per cent) from the North Okanagan Shuswap, about 37 per cent from the Central refinishing for the IPE. The Interior Provincial Exhibition and Stampede runs Aug. Okanagan and the rest from around the province and Western Canada. Last year’s 28 to Sept. 1 in Armstrong. 150,170 visitors came from as far away as Europe and Asia.

Enjoy the Fruits of our Labour continued from page 3 “Saturday is always parade day and we have the rodeo, which is one of the best in the province,” said Burns. He’s proud that Western Horse Magazine (July/August 2013) named the IPE #16 in its list of must-sees, with the Calgary Stampede at #12. Two years ago, Canadian Cowboy Country Magazine ranked the IPE as the number one Best Fair and Rodeo in North America. “It’s family friendly and everyone talks to each other. It just makes you feel good to be there. Most people come at least twice and some come all five days,” he said. Attractions like entertainment, including a youth talent contest, on three stages, stock dog and dog agility events and shows, like the 4-H displays and show animals, within the divisions keep people happy. There are more than 200 vendors at the fair. The West Coast Lumber Jacks Show and the mini-chuck wagons racing are also crowd pleasers. Last year’s popular Barn Dances will be back on Friday and Saturday nights. “I try and get everywhere on the grounds and see how everything is going, any little changes that would make things even better. I also go to other fairs during the year to see what we can learn from them,” said Burns. “People work all year round to make the fair happen. In the fall, people are already asking us what the theme will be for next year. We have a great fair and everybody takes pride and wants to deliver a great product. A lot of people on the board were in the fair in 4-H and still show their animals. The fair is a tradition for many families.”

ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff They’re strong men and women with a strong message for youth. Youth With A Mission Global Gateway’s Team Xtreme will perform amazing demonstrations three times daily during the Interior Provincial Exhibition in Armstrong. “We’ll be doing feats of strength and cultural expressions that come mainly from the South Pacific Islands,” said April Fine, who along with her Tongan husband, Masiu, facilitate Youth With A Mission Global Gateway from their office in Oliver. “You’ve probably seen the Haka performed at the beginning of rugby games by the world-famous New Zealand All Blacks. Well, our guys will be doing the Haka before they start breaking bricks, tearing phone books and bending rebar.” It will be Team Xtreme’s first-ever appearance at the IPE. Besides Fines, Team Xtreme will also feature one other male performer from Tonga, one man from Fiji, two men from Samoa and one Canadian woman. As Team Xtreme is a Christian non-denominational organization, their performances come with a strong message aimed mainly at youth. “We won’t be out there thumping the bible, but our show is a challenge for youth to make better choices,” said Fine. “To turn away from addictions, drugs, alcohol, whatever. It’s an alternative for what you can do with your life and make better and positive choices. “We want you to know there are other options out there.” The breaking of bricks is a message to show people that they can break through challenges that life throws at them, and overcome the challenges. The Fines have been spreading their message around the world, including Uganda, where the pair served as missionaries. “Our team members each have a story to tell about how their understanding of their identity has been transformed and their lives have changed direction,” said Fine. “There are many battles that we face in our world and Team Xtreme desires to equip this generation to rise up and take a stand, and to make good decisions which have a positive impact in our communities.” Team Xtreme will perform three times daily at the IPE: at noon, 2:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. More information on the organization can be found at ywamglobalgateway.org. Click on the “ministries” tab and you’ll find the Team Xtreme link. They also have a Facebook page, YWAM Global Gateway.

CARA BRADY The people who came out to the IPE more than 100 years ago would recognize most of the finest local produce on display and would be happy to know it’s still being used in delicious meals. Iron Chef team from the BX Grill at the What they might puzzle over are locally Vernon Lodge. L to R: Heath Cates, produced wild boar prosciutto, romanExecutive Chef, Sous-Chef Brian Flint esque cauliflower, dragon tongue beans and Sous-Chef Matt Tardiff . and haskup berries. The IPE’s Iron Chef competition brings these and more traditional ingredients together to showcase the best the valley has to offer. “The professional chefs from area hotels, wineries and restaurants are given a bag of ingredients, one of which is the secret ingredient, and they have to plan and produce a five-course meal. They also have access to local vegetables and fruit, protein and a basic pantry,” said organizer Andrea Gunner. “The judges are professionals from the food industry and one person selected from the audience before the competition starts. The chefs have 15 minutes to plan and an hour to get the meal ready. We have some world-class chefs in the area and it’s exciting to see what they come up with.” For the first time, this year’s competition will incorporate the use of elements of molecular gastronomy, which means combining ingredients in new ways. For example, the thickener agar with balsamic vinegar and wasabi to make little pearls that pop with flavour in the mouth. Last year, one chef made a palate cleanser between courses of lemon balm and liquid nitrogen, making it into a spoonful of cold steam.

Iron Chef continued from page 13 “That was unexpected and a crowd pleaser. It’s adding chemistry to cooking in a very playful way. The audience also likes the chance to try the samples from our suppliers who are very generous. This is a chance to see food that is only in the finest restaurants,” said Gunner, an agricultural economist who is involved in local food security organizations. The idea for Iron Chef as part of the IPE came from IPE past president Shirley Fowler who heard about it at the UBCM conference. The first Iron Chef was in 2010. “It has been a lot of fun. This is the region of Canada that is the most diverse agriculturally, including the wineries, and people are introducing new and heirloom varieties of produce, things like you see in markets in Paris or Amsterdam. Some of the chefs didn’t know a few of the products we gave them and it was exciting to see how creative they were,” said Gunner, who has recently returned from a twoweek culinary tour of Paris. “My passion in life is to help make farming economically viable. Having the Iron Chef fits in with the IPE celebration of good food and helps people learn about how they can get good ingredients locally and prepare and enjoy that food.” The Iron Chef competition takes place twice each day of the fair at 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. This year it is being moved to an outdoor location to allow for more spectators. Anyone who wants to enter a draw to be a judge should come early.

CARA BRADY

Enjoy the IPE! We will be open during our regular hours

The IPE started as an exhibit of the best people had to show, and many visitors still head to the exhibit halls first. The exhibit areas, from the areas for animals to the crops and crafts, always interest and delight, thanks to the people who bring the fruits of their work to the fair. Sisters Marge Sauer and Myrt Smeaton were always artistic, with Sauer teaching herself to paint and Smeaton showing her musical talent at an early age. Over the years, they’ve tried ceramics, woodwork, making flowers and sewing. “Anything we heard about, we had to try it,” said Sauer. When they started making miniatures in 2000, they knew they’d found the craft for them. From then on, they’ve both entered miniatures and other categories at the IPE every year. “It’s always a lot of fun. We get together for that week, Marge comes from Kelowna, and have a good visit and go to the fair. My daughter and granddaughter come and now they enter things too,” said Smeaton, who lives in Salmon Arm. Her husband, Bill, enters men’s cooking and they both enter the rose divisions, winning the trophy for best in show several years ago. Seeing their exhibits after judging is always exciting. “To see that red ribbon and know I actually won it. It’s good,” said Sauer. They encourage each other. “Marge paints so well. You can see how artistic she is,” she said, pointing out some of the paintings on a variety of materials that will be in the fair. The term miniatures covers making just about anything to a scale of 1” to 12” or 1/2” to 12” or, smallest of all, 1/4’ to 12”. While any material is creative fair game, many miniaturists use the Fimo (polymer clay) to shape the items they want. Smeaton and Sauer make dolls, fruit, right down to absolutely perfect blueberries, other food, animals, and flowers with Fimo. They like making room boxes, detailed replicas of c. 1900 scenes. Gel’s Sweets and Treats room box features luscious looking cakes and baking, complete with cherries, displayed in a tea room. The sisters have made doll houses for their grandchildren and won prizes for their doll houses in shows. “We came away with top prizes in shows in Seattle, Vancouver and Edmonton and had a display at O’Keefe Ranch a few years ago,” said Smeaton. They’re always on the look out for things they can use in their art, keeping in mind their father’s saying that he could always make something from nothing.

Sunday, August 25, 2013 - The Morning Star Z27 “I bought alpaca wool for doll hair at the IPE and we’re always getting ideas. We watch cooking shows and really look at things around us so we can make them. We spent hours making a turkey once,” said Sauer, who misses the help she got with woodwork from her late husband, Royce. While they have been asked to teach, they prefer to spend time on their own art. “Inspiration just comes to me as I work. It can take a long time to make the smallest things but you learn tricks and there’s always another idea,” said Smeaton, who used to sell her miniature food at craft shows and on eBay. Sauer agreed. “We can never say we have nothing to do because we always

think of something else. Sometimes at night when I’m supposed to be sleeping, I’m thinking of what I can make next,” she said. “We like entering things in the IPE because all the people in the office are so nice and friendly and they make it easy to do the entries.” Her next project will be room boxes of a log cabin and an artist’s studio, with her own miniature paintings. Smeaton isn’t sure what she’ll do, maybe dolls, like the one in a replica of the wedding dress she made for her granddaughter. And they’ll be at the fair for as many days as possible to enjoy all the exhibits, vendors and entertainment

Inspiration just comes to me

Like many announcers before him, Brett Gardiner’s Rodeo career began in the arena as a contestant. While competing in both the Roughstock and Timed Events, he gained an insight and love for the sport of Rodeo. It is that love for the sport and appreciation for the contestants that he tries to convey to the audience each and every performance. Gardiner’s distinctive sound, infectious energy and informative style has seen him climb the ranks of the industry and become one of the most sought after Announcers on Canadian soil. An occupation that will see him travel from coast to coast 40 weeks of the year as he has quickly and firmly endeared himself to audiences across Canada. Brett has been fortunate enough to have received the Bill Kehler Memorial award on two separate occasions during his intercollegiate career and in 2011 and 2012 received the industry’s top honour by being named the CPRA’s Announcer of the Year. When not travelling the Rodeo trail Brett makes his home in Sylvan Lake, AB with his wife Jaclyn and their two children Grady and Hadley.

No Clowning Around... Dennis Halstead has been a Professional Rodeo Clown and Barrelman for 11 years and still enjoys being in the arena as much today as he did 10 years ago. Dennis carries that enthusiasm into the arena with each performance.

As well as a Rodeo Clown, he has been a City of Calgary Firefighter for 25 years. Being a Firefighter has helped him appreciate what he does in rodeo, especially his kindness towards children.

AMAZE

The Border Collie was originally called the “Scotch Sheep Dog” and originated in Northumberland along the borders of Scotland and England. It is a descendant of dogs used by the Vikings to herd reindeer. By using their prey/predator relationship, and their sheer drive and love for working, the Border Collie has an eye that can hypnotize cattle. It can master any type of herd by crouching down and mesmerizing the animals with its intense stare. The shepherds in Scotland and Wales, with their hilly farming land and rugged landscape, saw the need for an all-purpose stock and herding dog, hence the ‘border collie’. Intelligence, tenacity, speed, ability to work tirelessly from morning ‘til night became the basis of the characteristics of this breed. With the long lonely hours and rough terrain and climate, shepherd and dog formed a unique bond and respect, far beyond ‘a man’s best friend’. Bragging rights in the local pubs, over a pint of beer, soon progressed to outright competition in the fields, where stock-dog trialing was born. This little black and white dog crosses many an ocean, from Europe to Australia, North America, and South America, where bragging rights today are far more than over a ‘pint of beer’. Come out at the IPE and see these tenacious dogs as they awe you with their tireless ability, intelligence, and beauty.

Z30 114th Annual Interior Provincial Exhibition and Stampede

Best ROGER KNOX

Morning Star Staff They chop. They roll. They saw. They climb. The West Coast Lumberjack Show returns to the Interior Provincial Exhibition August 28 to September 1st. The show is made up of professional lumberjack athletes, all of whom are either current or former Canadian champions in the various events, as well as an emcee to guide the action. Our lumberjacks have recently been featured on several national television series including The Bachelor Canada and Canada’s Got Talent as well as internationally on The Amazing Race Australia and the new Bates Motel television series in the United States. Events include log rolling, underhand and standing block chops, a hot saw race and, arguably the most entertaining event, pole climbing, where a pair of lumberjacks race up a large pole, ring a bell at the top then scamper their way back down to the ground. The West Coast Lumberjack Show runs three shows daily. They are located on the ball diamond directly across from the Nor-Val Sports Centre.
